Camp Vermilion is a beautiful camp on Lake Vermilion four hours north of the Cities. It will be a week of a lifetime: canoeing, learning camping skills, cooking over a fire, teamwork, deepening friendships and making new NLC friends, being silly, laughing, and learning what it means to live and love as God’s people in the world.

Camp Vermilion (of Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry) carefully selects their staff in order to provide the best experience possible for each camper, including yummy meals for hungry campers. Everything VLM does is to help kids see it truly is great to be alive in God's Great Northwoods!
